5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back 7 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Like walking into your favourite pub and seeing most of your best friends. The perfect blend of established favourites and new music (for me). The musicians, "old and new", are many of the finest on their different scenes, and the exchange between them adds a new dimension to every track. We share the fun they had making it. Congratulations to Pelicula and Whirlie. When is Transat 2 coming out? and 5 & 6?

5.0 out of 5 stars transatlantic 23 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have been enjoying the BBC4 series and wanted a permanent memento. This album has provided it.

The standard of musicianship is very high and the participants' evident enthusiasm rings out, loud and clear.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone seeking beautiful and unpretentious music played at a very exacting level.

5.0 out of 5 stars West meets Celts 11 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Once again an amazing gathering of musicians reading like a proverbial "who's who".
Its an eclectic mix especially some of the Americans who are less from the folk tradition and one or two of the songs are "interesting" with pipes/fiddles et al in the backing when perhaps the original arrangements were more electric. None the less the performances are all great and provided you are not expecting a "traditional" scots or irish acoustic sound then its really enjoyable. I have not stopped listening to series 3 and I think series 4 is also going to be regular in the CD player.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZON'S CHRISTMAS MAGIC 19 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Thanks to the magic of Amazon's distribution system, my DVD arrived just before Christmas. It must be every exile's dream to have these guests around the `hearth' at this time of year. The in-house laddies: Jerry, Aly, Russ, Michael, Ronan, Phil, Donald, Danny, Todd, and James (when will he get his own `spot'?) are in fine form, while the lassies: Julie, Karen, Jenna (looking even more beautiful), Mairead, Allison, Emily, Martha, Rosanne, must be what the Guardian meant by "looks as good as it sounds". For me the standout tracks are the instrumentals: Allan and Ronan dueting on pipes (Allan on Northumbrian pipes?); Jerry on "unionhouse Branch'; Aly's medley in Programme 4, and Ronan's amazing `Black, Black, Black'. The spirit of John Martyn seems to be present in Liam O Maonlai, while Allison Moorer really captures the spirit of the exile's lament in `Carrickfergus'. My only criticism would be the lack of banjo - surely the ultimate Transatlantic cross-over instrument (would have sounded great with Russ Barenberg's `The Pleasant Beggar'), also Donal and Phil should sing more often (and play bouzouki together!). Hope my Transatlantic 5 arrives by next Christmas!
